Since Adam and I got together we’ve always had it on our hearts to adopt, but the path our story has taken is very different than what we originally planned. We’ve always talked about international adoption, but over the last year it became very clear that God was calling us to adopt domestically. To us, adoption is about providing a loving, caring, God-centered home to a child, and having a positive relationship with our birth mother. Adoption can involve challenges, high financial cost, and even hurt and pain, but we believe that life is about putting our YES on the table and seeing what God has planned for our lives.
Our family has always been very supportive of adoption. Even though neither one of us has any close adopted relatives, Adam’s brother and sister-in-law are also walking this adoption journey. Seeing how excited and supportive our family has been of their process allows Adam and I to feel comfortable starting the journey ourselves.
